This is a wonderful memorial rings. This one is a little different, because it has what appears to be strands of hair in the painting, with shiny elements. The ring is navette shaped, under a glass bezel, in a 9 ct or better setting. The top of the ring is 7/8 of an inch North to South, and 1/2 an inch East to West. We have a lady in Georgian dress, kneeling in front of an urn The urn has a sort of 3d aspect with a gold band across the bottom. The weeping willow is symbolized with the strands of hair, and the words, "Eliz Longsdale, ob 24th of April, 1782, AE 55, are printed in sepia paint across the top of the scene. The ring is in very good condition, and appears to be all original. There is a small chip to the glass of the bezel, at 11 o'clock, which shows in the photo, and a dark place in the gold which can't be felt, at 9, which also shows. Both of these are very minor for a ring which is 204 years old It is a lady's size 6 to 6 and 1/2, but it could be sized.
